generating news items regarding activities associated with a user of a social network environment and attaching an informational link associated with at least one of the activities, to at least one of the news items, as well as limiting access to the news items to a predetermined set of viewers and assigning an order to the news items. The method further may further include displaying the news items in the assigned order to at least one viewing user of the predetermined set of viewers and dynamically limiting the number of news items displayed.
Reading this they include in the patent a method to dynamically limit the the number of news items displayed. So what they invented a dynamic LIMIT function? Plus the whole thing about attaching a link to the activity being reported, how is that new? It is a link in a feed.
This really wreaks. I feel bad for linkedin.
